Besides THE "Row Jimmy" that was played at Barton Hall, what are some other versions that feature such fantastic slide playing? Or do they not exist?

Gorgeous Row Jimmy in Dijon (one of the finest first sets the band ever played, by the way)...

Spot on Cliff! It doesn't seem as focused as the Barton version but it is still very good. You recommended that Scarlet to me a while back which is definitely a good one, as is the entire set-especially that UJB.

Is there a show as laser focused as Barton?

8/13/75 maybe...

Jerry's slide playing on the It's A Sin jam from 6/18/74 is utterly sublime.

Right up there with Weir's slide work of later years, don'tcha think? :P

I burned that whole show onto a CD without hearing a note of it and was not disappointed! I don't know if the It's a Sin jam holds up to Bobby's mind boggling slide work on LRR though.

Personally I always preferred Jerry's Slide on Passenger, powerful slide and power chords!! Also liked theslide he would play on Red Rooster!!

The solos in this Row Jimmy are absolutely amazing -

And to boot, we get the best-ever standalone Scarlet, and a great Stephen>Other One.
